Resolution to report the findings on the possibility of a West Dade Government Facility for unincorporated Miami-Dade is approved


At Tuesday’s Board of County Commission meeting, Miami-Dade County Commissioners voted on a resolution asking Mayor Carlos Gimenez to study the feasibility of a West Dade Government center for the residents who live in the unincorporated areas of West Miami-Dade. 

Of the 2.5 million residents of Miami-Dade County, 733,000 live in area of Miami Dade County west of the Palmetto and south of State Road 836. As part of the Home Rule Charter and the Citizens Bill of Rights, the County is obligated to make municipal government convenient and accessible to residents. As part of this rule, the South Dade and North Dade Government Center have proven great success.

With this resolution Commissioner Zapata wants a report that explores the possibility of building or leasing an area for a West Dade government center. This property should be able to serve the residents of unincorporated West Dade. 

For more information, please contact Commissioner Zapata’s office at (305) 375-5511.
